Continuing with our CHRISTMAS IN JULY theme, this months card challenge is to get a head start on your christmas cards and create a 'SET OF 3' cards. They may be made of any product but they should be a similar design to create the set.

You have until the 14th of August to get your entries in, by e-mailing them to Joanne or dropping them in-store.

I look forward to seeing your wonderful creations which will be displayed in the gallery at SCRAPBOOKIT
